It may have something to do with compliance. I remember seeing a smiley in the settings but I can't remember where.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Hang in there for answers to your question and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
Either compliance or leaks. Probably nothing to do with having a good AHI. Would be nice if it was, though.

I asked Lincare (where I got my machine) it's telling you the machine is properly working and no leaks.

Lincare is wrong as usual! Never believe what a DME tells you, they seem to be the least informed people I have ever dealt with.
I have been using the Icon for years, two different versions, I have the clinical manual and it clearly states that the Smiley face is for compliance only, that's why you did not see it until thirty days had past. It's set to standard insurance definition of compliance.
